      Message from the Principal

      Physiotherapy is one of the most important fields of health sciences involved in the treatment of human ailments. Unluckily, it has not been given its due importance in our hospitals and medical colleges/teaching institutions. As a result there is shortage of skilled personnel in this field in our country. The Margalla Institute of Health Sciences (MIHS) is the pioneer in the private sector which realized this deficiency and took the initiative by founding the Islamabad College of Physiotherapy (ICP) in 1997 at Islamabad.

      In order to meet the latest trends and developments in Physiotherapy education worldwide, the ICP is utilizing state of the art teaching methodologies and educational tools and has a dynamic and vibrant academic environment. At present the faculty of the ICP comprises qualified foreign staff which has the vision to equip the students with discipline-specific technical competencies and generic skills, as well as the required vocational attributes to make them valuable members of the physiotherapeutic work environment. Since 1997, when the Institute was established, more than 260 professionals have been graduated and by the grace of Allah, all of them have been employed by some of the most respected healthcare organizations both within the country and abroad.

      Our mission is to produce physiotherapists who will be competent to render a professional evidence based service, that is, who have the necessary knowledge, skills, critical thinking, behavior and attitudes to pursue their profession as physiotherapists and managers in all the ramifications of physiotherapy and health care.

      In the last, I pray to Allah the Almighty for the better future of the students and the Institution.
